Icon14 1999 dragster

Hey I am Torkit from Texas. This is my second Ranger its a single cab 99. My first one was a custom 93 white single cab Splash. I put over 250,000 on it. Great truck, if you own a Splash we can be friends. I prefer stepside minitrucks. My daily is a 01 stepside Taco. Here are some details about the 99 buildup.

1999 Ford Ranger 2.3l four cylinder
20 inch forged chrome wheels
Complete air bag suspension with 5 gallon tank, 175 PSI
eight 3/8'' electric valves for quick pancake action, and front back and side to side
4 link with monster notch for the axle.
Motor raise 2 inch, frame Zed to lay frame on 20''.
Custom transmission crossmember
Crystal cut corners, fogs, and headlights w/ LEDs.
15 gallon aluminum fuel cell and battery in the bed.
Panasonic CD player with Kicker L7 solobaric 10''
Limo tint for the police to look at.
Fiberglass bed cover, not in the pictures

Wolfe Race Craft - Home Page did all the suspension work.

Future plans:
Paint and body work with mild graphics.
Roll pan shave tailgate.
Updated taillights
Billet interior accessories
Low back buckets seats
Show it at custom truck shows.

Mint truck. Make sure you keep the front end. Not too many 98-00 rangers around.

Thanks for the warm welcome to RF. I will post some more pics of the suspension work, even though I have not finished painting and everything. Lots of work left to do. Korey the bags are on the bar.

Thanks guys, I took some more requested photos. The bed is unfinished I need to trim the tubs for the axle, sand and paint all the metal work. This is just the start I have plans, the truck is built for 22'' wheels.

20'' hit blower. No AC in TX is a problem. This is a grocery getter.
